 Average Internet access and connectivity costs in Virginia schools are more expensive than the national average, and now a nonprofit organization has chosen the Commonwealth for a free program that will discover why and propose cost-lowering options.   Governor McAuliffe has announced that the “EducationSuperHighway” will gather detailed information from all school divisions, analyze the data, and then provide technical assistance.  The governor emphasized that high-speed connectivity is now essential for both a 21st-century education and economy.
